'The details are comprehensive in relation to adhering to the title
itself, The Brain and Behavior, and it is a very important read for
all physicians working in neurology, psychiatry, family medicine
and clinical psychology ... The book is informative, useful,
written in a very scientific way and contains information that is
important to know. It is definitely worth buying.'
'This third edition should be required reading for all psychiatry residents and psychiatrists. The information it provides is needed to practice psychiatry for the next few decades.' Doody's
'For this introductory textbook, the reader would not need to possess much prior knowledge in the field. In fact, exactly because of its clarity and succinctness it presents an excellent starting point altogether. ... essential reading for trainees, but the book may also appeal to several groups of professionals (academic or clinical) including neuropsychologists, clinical psychologists, neuropsychiatrists, neurologists and neuroscientists, especially early in their career.'
